Domaine Ey SOC Grenache Blanc 

Domaine Ey Grenache Blanc
This fresh, satisfying Roussillon white features clean stone fruit aromatics underscored with a hint of green herbs. The palate is smooth and perfectly balanced with fresh acidity, soft chalky minerality, and a long marzipan and pistachio finish. At $14.99 this is an extraordinary value!
Patrice and Coraline Ey run their small family owned winery located in the Eastern Pyrenees with a strong commitment sustainable and organic agriculture. They have been ECOCERT certified organic since 2011.

The Grenache Blanc grapes for this wine come from 60 year old vines in the “Torremila” vineyard located on a windswept plateau, influenced by a Mediterranean climate with dry sunny days. The pebbly clay and limestone soils provide excellent drainage and heat retention that allows grapes to ripen to perfection. Very low yields and careful hand harvesting result in top quality fruit that is macerated for a few days in a cold room to capture maximum flavor and complexity. After gentle pressing and temperature controlled fermentation the wine is aged for 9 months in stainless steel tank to develop body and complexity while retaining the fresh fruit flavors.
